Recently I went to a Meetup group for people who enjoy origami. Yes, that’s right I said it, origami. Not that I actually have an origami habit, but it was part of my agenda to try to get out and do new things. I always enjoyed origami when I was nine, so why not as an adult? What could have changed? I started by visiting a local craft store to purchase my packet of pre-cut origami sized papers in an array of beautiful colors: yellows, electric blues, and bell pepper reds. I knew I had to come prepared.
All of six people joined me at the Meetup group. Four of the others showed up with similar origami kits. But one wayward sole came with what appeared to be at least four stacks of twenty, one dollar bills. That’s money! I only spent $3.99 on my kit.
While folding, I messed up my creases, and then re-folded my cutesy papers and often ended up with a crinkled mess. I couldn’t help but notice the “Dollar Bill Origami Genius” consistently turned out amazing creations made from our U.S. currency. Sometimes he’d use more than one dollar bill per piece, which is obviously why he came with some many bills. He consistently turned out the most impressive origami artwork out of the bunch. So it inspired me to look for others with the same passion, and I found some impressive work. Enjoy!
